90. Our Great Savior

1 Jesus! what a Friend for sinners!
Jesus! Lover of my soul;
friends may fail me, foes assail me,
he, my Savior, makes me whole.

Refrain:
Hallelujah! what a Savior!
Hallelujah! what a Friend!
Saving, helping, keeping, loving,
he is with me to the end.

2 Jesus! what a Strength in weakness!
Let me hide myself in him;
tempted, tried, and sometimes failing,
he, my Strength, my victory wins. [Refrain]

3 Jesus! what a Help in sorrow!
While the billows over me roll,
even when my heart is breaking,
he, my Comfort, helps my soul. [Refrain]

4 Jesus! what a Guide and Keeper!
While the tempest still is high,
storms about me, night o'ertakes me,
he, my Pilot, hears my cry. [Refrain]

5 Jesus! I do now receive him,
more than all in him I find,
he hath granted me forgiveness,
I am his, and he is mine. [Refrain]
